If it’s one thing I really envy it’s those who dive into their interests, or should I say passions, with magnificent obsession.
It’s something intriguing about someone who stops at nothing to find out that next little detail about their subject and never give up on their interest. There is this little fire inside of them that burns independent of whether or not any one else shares the interest.
It’s like you can’t help but become interested when a person speaking passionately about something (one exception might be politics, I don’t get fired up about all kinds of opinions no-matter the passions behind).
The other darker side of the coin of the obsessive personality is its obsessiveness, of course. It requires a lot from persons in the immediate proximity of her or him. I get that. But we must remember that;
- They are the ones who go ahead of the rest of us.
- They are the ones who develop new and deep knowledge.
- They push the limits of what is possible for all of us.
Almost everyone who are really good at what they are doing are magnificently obsessive about their topic or niche. Maybe it is a prerequisite to be able to put in all those hours required to master anything?
I love to talk to and interview people about their biggest passions, about the stuff they have great knowledge in. So many juicy aha-moments comes out of that.
If you are magnificently obsessive about something greater or other than yourself, but feel stuck or lack confidence in pursuing your passion, we must talk. In my service The Private Patfinding Experience I help persons just like you to remove those blocks so that you can continue digging deep and running way ahead of the rest of us.

P.S. I’m obsessively curious (but not when it comes to peoples’ private lives, I’m not into prying) and can’t help but wanting to know more about more stuff. I guess that’s why I envy those who stay in one spot and dig deep. But if you are one of them my obsession can help yours.
